Ravens attend Indiana running back Tevin Coleman's pro day workout

Indiana running back Tevin Coleman ran the 40-yard dash at his campus pro day Wednesday, and he was timed at between 4.35 and 4.4 seconds, according to sources.

At least 23 NFL teams attended the workout, including a Ravens scout and running back coach Thomas Hammock.

Coleman has visited the Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions.

Nicknamed "Rock," Coleman was unable to work out at the NFL scouting combine due to a broken right big toe that he played with through last season. He had surgery in December to repair the sesamoid bone in his right big toe.

The 5-foot-11, 206-pound running back has been projected as a potential second-round draft pick.

Coleman suffered the injury in the fifth game last season against North Texas, but didn't miss a game and rushed for a school-record 2,036 yards. Coleman had four games of 200 yards or more and eight touchdown runs of 60 yards or longer. He finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy balloting.

Coleman has drawn comparisons to Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray because of his upright running style and series of breakaway runs, like those seen in this highlight video.

Although the Ravens re-signedJustin Forsett, they are expected to add a young running back through the draft.
